How We Met

Mackie came into my life when I needed him most. I had just spent almost 4 years with a horse that was all wrong for me. Mackie was such a willing partner, he made having a horse such a treat. He tried to please no matter what you asked of him. Knowing what I know now, I realize that life was really tough for Mackie. He had many health issues, everything from mild colic to choke, to allergic reaction to a vaccine and then a reaction to the antibiotic. His biggest challenge was getting and surviving EPM not once but twice. As a result of the EPM meds he developed gastric ulcers, it just went on and on. Thru all of this Mackie never once complained. It looked like we were finally on our way to enjoying ourselves, when his behavior changed, nothing drastic, just a little off. After a consultation with our Vet, an appointment was made at the University Equine Hospital for Mackie to see a cardiologist. The night before our appointment I told Mackie that we were going to get some answers, in my heart I knew it was not good, but I had hope because after all, these people were specialists. It was a very long day, filled with tons of tests and information overload. When all the info had been gathered, we sat down and they explained to me that he was in heart failure, only one of his four heart valves was functioning. They felt that this condition had been present for years, they said for me not to beat myself up, it was NOT something that either Dr. Cook or I had missed. Typically horses don't show symptoms because they keep trying, they said Mackie never gave up, his heart did.. His prognosis was poor to hopeless, I had 3 options, 1. leave him at the hospital and treat, however, they told me that they did not recommend treatment, even if it did help, it would be short lived. 2. take him home to die, but it would not be a peaceful death. 3. I could let him go now. I choose to let him go, I stayed with him, at his side the whole time, it was important to me that my face and my voice be the last he saw and heard. I held him and told him how much he was loved, I came home alone that day. He was only 12. I donated his body to the University Hospital, I got great comfort from knowing that his heart might help someone else's horse. I miss him everyday. Love you Mackie. We will meet again.

$600 plus whatever it cost to replace the control panel for my car's ac. Compressor's leaking. Rick won't agree to a new fence. We're going to have to patch what's left of the one we have. For now, Scruffy's chained during the day and inside at night. Leaving love to all and a vote.

Missing you..
I posted a pic of the other side of the Paint. I have to admit Paints are not my thing, I'm a Bay girl, do ya think...Anyway, this Paint may be the best choice, hoping to meet him tomorrow, his Mom may be having second thoughts, apparently she has a couple of small kids and a job, so she is busy, and she wants Eddie ridden, but I'm not sure she is ready to let someone else ride her horse, I get that, all tho, she contacted me. So, we will see how it goes. Have a great day, off to the barn, we left a vote.

We left a vote today
Remember guys, these horses are NOT coming home, this is a situation where I can go a couple times a week and ride. I posted pictures of the 3 possibles, until I ride all 3 I won't make a decision. I really miss riding, of course it would be lovely to have one here, but reality says, until Sterl is ready to go, it will be just me and the girls. Then maybe we can talk about bringing one home, maybe. Gotta sneak past David tho, lol.

Very busy work weekend. I had to pick Scruffy up from Animal control in Phoenix, today. He was somehow picked up by the police about 20 miles, or so, away. Too hot for him to walk that far. I borrowed Austin car, because the ac in my car isn't working. Hope all are well. Love and a vote.

I rode one of the three horse that I have decided to look at, I was suppose to try another one, but guess what, it rained all day...I'm meeting the last one on Thursday and after I have ridden all three I'll decide. So, one is a Paint, very well trained and an easy ride I'm told. One is a TB/Draft cross I rode him, I like him however he has not had much done and tries to get away with being a bit pushy, his owner/rider is timid plus they are farther away than I would like to travel. The third one is a TW/Quarter Horse cross?? she thinks, he is a lovely dark bay, quite a bit overweight right now due to not being worked at all, he is apparently a nice ride, well trained, came from a ranch/camp situation. I met his owner and the horse but have not ridden him yet. He is a possible for sure. Stayed tuned, have a good day.

I'M LOOKING..
Good Morning my friends, sorry, again for being absent. I just can't seem to shake this down I'm in. Don't get me wrong, I'm happy, Sterl May is great and Blossom is a "bag of snakes" but I miss Charlie soooo much. I have, with the support of Marion (our HC friend) started to look for a horse to ride, even if only a couple of times a week. I simply can not afford another horse here at home right now, But, thinking back to when I leased Fool Kat, made me remember that there opportunities out there, I just have to find the right one. I have narrowed it down to three, I have looked at one, I'm riding one this morning and on tomorrow and then next week checking out the third. I want fairly close to home so I'm not driving all over the county, I'll keep you posted as to what I find. Left a vote, Donna Lee

So much going on. 3 family members have terminal cancer, my mom has alzheimer's, dementia and Parkinson's disease, and with other issues, I haven't felt much like being on HC or Facebook. I leave for Minnesota on the 21st of June. Got that week off approved at work. Now, I'm waiting to hear about the 5th of July through the 17th. I put in for those days to drive to Nevada to see my son and his family, then bring my grandsons home with me for a week's visit. I'm so excited about them moving back to the States and being closer to me. Already planning my first Christmas with them. So wonderful to have something so wonderful to look forward to. Leaving lots of love and a vote.

I think being up at night takes a toll. My work shifts are sometimes 8 hours long with no breaks. Doesn't bother me. I think sitting down for too long and allowing myself to be lazy, feels too good. Looking forward to retiring in 100 years. Lol. Love and a vote.

No horsey time. I'm tired on my days off. I'm taking several vitamin supplements, but after working, I'm lazy on my days off. Got chores to catch up on, too. I said I want to retire at 62 and live comfortable one week out of the month. Trips I have to take, so I'll keep working. My uncle in Minnesota has terminal cancer. Saving up for a flight to visit him. Will be taking trips to Las Vegas to visit my son and his family. Eric got orders for Nellis AFB. I'm soooo happy! I haven't seen my grandsons in 6 years. This Christmas will be my first one with them. God answered my prayers and is sending them close to me. Sadie's doing good. Just love her. Love and a vote.

Crazy weather. Suppose to cool down into the 70's this weekend. Had Scruffy's ac on Thursday, but he wouldn't stay in his doghouse. Sissy came inside the house and stayed. The only thing that seems to bother Sadie is the pain in the butt flies. Wishing everyone a blessed weekend. Love and a vote.
